Undercover Men




Everyone thinks that bank teller Bob Hunter was a coward during a holdup, so he is fired and joins the R.C.M.P. and gets kicked out . . . it looks pretty bad for Bob . . .

Subject: A Canadian Mountie Gem
In 1934, Director Sam Newfield went to Canada to make a couple of films for Booth/Dominion of Canada. He took along an American camera man as well as Charles Starrett, Adrienne Dore (in her last film) and Wheeler Oakman as well as Canadian Kenne Duncan (who may have been instrumental in getting this made in the first place) and shot a little gem of a Mountie picture. This is it. It was shot in and around Brampton and Erin Ontario using both indoor and outdoor locations to full advantage. Starrett at the top of his game. Oakman cast against type as the Mountie officer is as professional as they get. The rest of the cast are fine but maybe type-cast in some instances. The story has weak spots but they are easily overlooked. I own a copy of this film. From what I've been able to figure out, it was never released in the USA.Originally released in Canada by Dominion and then in 1936 was released throughout the U.K. by M.G.M. However I wouldn't rule out an American release or re-release at some point.
This copy has a good picture, but sound is ragged and shows excsssive wear on the soundtrack. It's still highly watchable. Enjoy.
